As an engineering company based environmental engineering, we are committed to continuing to “Continuous Improvement”

That is continuous improvement in improving the living environment to realize the Green Industry mandated by:

  1. Act No. 32 of 2009 on the Protection and Environmental Management.
  2. Company Performance Evaluation Program in the Field of Environmental Management (PROPER) / Program Ministry of the Environment.
  3. Resource Efficient Clean Produck (RECP} / Program Ministry of Industry.

Through research and our experiences, research and development (R & D) product to be one of our strengths in providing solutions in environmental issues are becoming greater challenges in the industrial era and globalization.

Palm oil mill (MCC) in addition to functions for processing fresh fruit bunches (FFB) of palm oil into crude palm oil (crude palm oil, CPO) may also produce waste biomass in large quantities.

In general the processing of 1 ton TBS will produce a ton of waste as much as 0:23 oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB), 0:13 tons of fibers (mesocarpfibre), 0:06 tons of shell (shell palm), dan0.65 tonnes of palm oil mill effluent (LCPKS).

This time to banyakan EFB produced by MCC can only be used as a mulch (compost) in oil palm plantations which, although beneficial to plant oil palm but actually TKKS is biomass that can be made into pellets / briquettes.

Furthermore, pellets / briquettes EFB can be used as an alternative fuel that is environmentally friendly and renewable.

The process of making pellets / briquettes EFB
  • TKKS conversion into pellets / briquettes TKKS done through a series of
    a process that includes:
  • Empty Bunch Crusher
  • Thresser
  • Empty Bunch preess
  • Shredded Empty Bunch
  • Cutter
  • Dryer
  • Bricket Machine
  • Bricket Bunker
Stages Pellet Manufacture of EFB

Schematically stage of making pellets from EFB (can be seen in figure beside / below) as a raw material supplied from the MCC using a conveyor.

EFB first processed by destroyed (crushing), chopped (shredding), slamming (thressing) and pressed (pressing) to reduce the water content, and to get oil recovery.
oil recovery.

EFB which has been counted and reduced water content is then sent by the conveyor to the dryer unit (drying), cutter (cutting) and onwards to the briquette machine / pellet (bricketing).

Stages schematic Making Briquettes / pellets from EFB

Assuming the content of EFB in FFB was 23% and a capacity of MCC by 30 tons / hour, the rate of EFB produced about 6.9 tons / hour. For the purposes of this required one shredder unit with a capacity of 7 tons / hour.

EFB that has been squeezed and dried and then cut to obtain chopped fibers with a maximum length of 2 inches. Short fiber which will facilitate in the print briquettes. For the purposes of this necessary first press cutter unit with a capacity of 7 tons / hour. Engineering flowsheet briquetting / pellets are shown in the Appendix.
